Join the community!
Startmotor is more than just living. You live there together with many other young professionals. Discover new faces, inspiring shared spaces and life-enriching experiences in our coliving community.
Sharing is caring
The Startmotor is for people who value a community alongside individuality. Our inviting community spaces are designed to bring people together. You can live, work, and play with fellow residents, while you can also relax in the comfort of your own home.
The Startmotor community
Startmotor is more than just living. The Startmotor offers a community living concept for like-minded people between the ages of 18 and 27. Together, our residents form the so-called community, which means that you’ll have the opportunity to broaden your network by meeting many interesting new people once you move in. The specially-designed and fully-furnished coliving spaces are the heart of our community environment. And what’s great about it is that you’ll never feel lonely when at the Startmotor. You’ll always run into someone or a small group, and before you know it, you’ll be having a drink on the rooftop terrace or playing a game of pool together.
Share your knowledge and passion
Upholding the well-being and continuity of our ever-growing community here at the Startmotor are our social committees. We have several committees based on different interests and hobbies – book club, film club, walking group, sports committee, social impact committee, a garden club and more. The committees are a great way to encourage social interactions among our residents through shared common interests. Our Community Manager, Nerima, will help you set up any initiative or ideas you might have for the community!
The Community Areas
The community areas are the heart of our community environment. You’ll find a fully equipped coliving space or room suited for your every need on each floor throughout the building — each with its own theme and purpose. Starting on the group floor, you’ll find the Ignite area, our ultimate meet, work and play space equipped with both a pool and ping pong table, a piano and a seating area. Adjacent to it, you’ll find the gym facility. Head past the lifts to the right and towards the back of the building, and you’ll find the entrance to the bike shed, storage area and the shared DIY room.
We have plenty of coliving rooms (on the 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th & 12th floor) for you to either work from home or use as your study space. And if you want to wind down after a busy day, you can play a game of darts or table football on the 2nd floor, head up to the ‘Read & Relax’ room on the 4th, play a board game or a game of pool up on the 8th or simply relax in one of the ‘Contemplate’ room’s a swinging chairs’ up on the 11th floor.
Are you a fitness fanatic or just love to do sports? Then you’re spoiled for choice. Our event roof on the 1st floor is suitable for boot camps, freerunning or even a quiet yoga class in the open air. You’ll also find a functional training station gym rack for bodyweight and callisthenics. On the 6th floor, we have a cardio-focused ‘Workout’ room. And when you head up to the 10th floor, you’ll find our multi-purpose rooftop sports court, which offers you a 360 view of the South Rotterdam skyline.
Other highlights include our rooftop garden, maintained by our garden club. On the 9th floor, you’ll find the cinema where residents can plug in their laptop and watch the latest films, series or even stream sporting events. And finally, up on the 13th, you’ll find the fully-equipped restaurant-worthy kitchen, the lounge area and our rooftop terrace – both of which offer you an eye-catching view of the surrounding skyline.

The Startmotor App
Upon receiving your rental confirmation email, you’ll also obtain instructions to download the Startmotor community app. When living at Startmotor, this is the go-to place for all kinds of information. You can report repairs, ask a neighbour for all sorts of advice, find practical information such as instruction manuals, cleaning schedules and rules & regulations. It’s also a great way to stay up to date with the latest news and happenings in the building. Next to all of that, the app also allows you to book one of our community rooms.
